We are happy to announce that we are adding a new pond herbicide, Spritflo™ Herbicide, to our pond product lineup. Spritflo™ Herbicide is a substitute for Sonar® AS Herbicide and contains the same active ingredient 41.7% Fluridone.
Spritflo™ Herbicide is great for management of aquatic vegetation in fresh water ponds, lakes reservoirs, potable water sources, drainage canals and irrigation canals. Spritflo™ also controls duckweed (floating plants) and nearly all submerged weeds in ponds. It stays suspended in the water longer than other pond herbicides providing longer control for undesirable aquatic vegetation. It can be applied right away to a pond to give more control and help stop weeds before they start to grow.
“We are excited to be a direct substitute for Sonar® AS Herbicide for less money,” says Chad Hadler, VP of Operations at Lake Restoration. “Customers now have a more affordable way to treat their pond with Fluridone for duckweed and submerged weeds using Spritflo™ Herbicide.”Spritflo™ Herbicide, a Lake Restoration product, is available in five sizes with the smallest 4 ounce size treating ponds that are half acre in size for $95.00. Other sizes available are: 8 ounce ($179.00) for treating up to a one acre pond, 1 pint ($329.00) for treating up to two acres, 1 quart ($582.00) for treating up to four acres, and one gallon ($1687.00) for treating up to sixteen acres.
Spritflo™ Herbicide is a concentrated herbicide that is easy to apply. Applications can be made directly into the pond by using a sprayer or the TORMADA® product application boat. The TORMADA® is remote controlled and enables ponds to be treated for aquatic vegetation right from the shoreline, reducing exposure to products. It is easy to use and fun to drive!
Work with our Lake Restoration aquatic experts to order Spritflo™ Fluridone Herbicide or to customize a pond kit that will enhance the overall health and appearance of their pond. We have a wide variety of aquatic herbicides, algaecides, and pond dyes to eliminate nuisance pondweeds and algae.

Watermeal is a challenge to control, and can easily double in area in days. It is the single smallest plant worldwide, making it difficult for the plant to uptake enough herbicide to be effective. It has a thick cuticle on both sides of the plant and shows no visible roots. It looks like a green cornmeal or grits and can quickly infest a pond.
An effective means of ridding your pond of pesky watermeal is to use our PONDRestore® Watermeal kit. This complete kit includes: Clipper Herbicide, Mizzen® Algaecide, Nutrient Reducer SparKlear® and also Sapphire Bay® Blue Pond Dye. You can easily control floating weeds or submerged weeds, reduce the phosphorus and other nutrients and eliminate algae.
Clipper delivers a rapid control of floating and submerged weeds such as watermeal, duck weed, water milfoil and pond weeds. It dissipates quickly from the water column giving minimal restrictions for irrigation. It is easy to use and you will see great results within 7-14 days! Clipper is also available in one pound or 5 pound containers.
Mizzen® Algaecide easily controls filamentous algae and effectively manages planktonic algae. It is a liquid, chelated copper based algaecide that is concentrated. It is easily applied and has zero restrictions for swimming, fishing and irrigation.
The PONDRestore® Watermeal kit also includes a nutrient reducer and a pond dye. SparKlear® reduces the nutrients that enable weed and algae growth. Using a pond dye not only adds a natural looking color to your pond, small lake or water feature, but it will also help block out specific light rays that will deter weed and algae growth.
Our PONDRestore® Watermeal kits are available in two convenient sizes starting at $295. Get the best option for controlling Watermeal and be on your way to a beautiful, clear and healthy pond!
